Just because something is simple, doesn’t mean it has to be boring – this incredible Swedish cottage is proof.
The gorgeous cottage sits in the Swedish countryside surrounded by a white picket fence. The home has a terracotta shingled roof that contrasts beautifully with the white siding. But it’s the inside of the home that is truly breathtaking.
Step through the cottage’s French doors to enter a small foyer.
Even though the room is all white, the hardwood floors provide warmth and contrast. This foyer is the perfect spot to hang your jacket and kick off your muddy boots. By adding plants, it adds an element of freshness to the area.
The living room is overflowing with charm.
The living room is a perfect blend of rustic meets luxury as you can tell by the wood planked walls and the crystal chandelier. A wicker coffee table serves as storage while throw pillows and blankets make the room feel cozy and inviting. Large windows allow lots of natural light to enter the room.
The kitchen is small, but just as impeccably decorated as the rest of the house.
The kitchen features an antique wood stove for cooking, wood planked ceiling and floors, and few cabinets for a bit of storage. A small throw rug adds an element of color to the all-white kitchen. This cottage even boasts a pizza oven which is something you don’t see in many homes.
Next to the kitchen is the small dining nook.
The dining nook consists of a wooden table, bench, and chairs. Although none of them ‘match,’ they all seem to work perfectly together. Eclectic decor and a couple of throw pillows and a bit of coziness to the space. The dining nook is situated underneath another one of the home’s many windows, making the area feel nice and bright.
Small details and surprises can be found in every corner of the cottage.
Exposed brick, wood flooring, and white-washed wood paneling all add to the abundance of this cottage’s charm. It’s as if it were torn straight from the pages of a storybook.
It’s no surprise that the bedroom looks like it belongs in a magazine.
It would be hard to get out of bed in the morning if you had a bedroom like this one. It features a large king-size bed with white and neutral colored linens and pillows. Wood planked walls and ceilings give the room a rustic feel while the large windows with sheer flowing curtains add a dreamy and whimsical element.
Near the back door is a desk and small seating area.
Enjoy a cup of coffee or read a nice book while sitting in a rocking chair taking in the countryside views. There is also a desk and workspace situated against the wall in the open space.
Continuing out the back door and you reach the sprawling backyard with relaxing hammock.
What makes this Swedish cottage so wonderful is that both the inside and the out are so incredibly inviting. Going with an all-white color scheme was a wise choice as it allows all the small details to really stand out.
Another view of the exterior of the home shows just how breathtaking the property really is.
The backyard boasts a large garden with picnic table to dine al fresco. There is even a smaller picnic table for the kids. How adorable is that?
